Complaints system not working?

Joining in

Before I actually rip my hair out… could somebody please provide me with a way of contacting Virgin Media, in writing, via web or email? As a caveat, I do not use/have access to WhatsApp

Their web form is not working. Shows “****” for complaint reference number and doesn’t send any auto-receipt or log of complaint.

I have tried:

Multiple browsers.

Different checkboxes on web form to submit.

Accessing via web and app

Any help would be much appreciated.

There's always donkey post at the address halfway down this page.  Given VM's universal quality standards, I'd always recommend using recorded post, and reading up on the escalation routes to the industry adjudicator which is towards the bottom of that linked page.

Hi sasaki, thanks for posting and welcome to our community.

Sorry to hear you've had an experience that has led you to needing to raise a complaint.  I can do this on your behalf, if you require?  I am going to send you a private message.  Please look out for the purple envelope in the top right of your screen.



Hi there, 

Complaints system also not working for me. Same problem. I had the same problem a month ago. When someone has a complaint the best way to make them really annoyed is to invite them to spend 10 minutes carefully writing their complaint and then deleting it. It's not funny and really Virgin Media you need to do better.

PS... and just to add. The Virgin Media code of practice states you can also phone 0345 454 1111 to make a complaint but there is no option to make a complaint so please could someone tell me how I make a complaint other than writing to Virgin Media? I am usually a very calm person but my whole experience for the last 18 months with Virgin Media has made me very angry. 

Can't help but speculate about what happens if you make an official complaint about the complaints system?

Some kind of infinite recursive loop gets generated - might possibly explain the Netflix fiasco, I suppose?😃
